Chaffetz…Leaving So Soon?

Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) this week announced he will not seek re-election when his term is up. It was then divulged he may not even finish this term. These surprising revelations raised a few questions—Was this decision made because Chaffetz doubted he would be re-elected? Was it because he could no longer defend Trump? Was it because he intended to set his cap higher and run for the office of Governor of Utah?
I don’t think Chaffetz has suddenly become self aware enough to realize he isn’t cut out for public service. Remember, this is the man who suggested people who were worried about the cost of health insurance should give up their iPhones. He said that while wearing an Apple Watch and carrying an iPhone. This is also the man who, at a February town hall meeting was confronted by hundreds of angry constituents who booed in response to his every statement, repeatedly shouting “Do your job!” 

He seemed unfazed.


He offers a simple explanation as to why he is stepping down.— He wants to spend more time with his family. That’s nice, but I think it’s something else. Chaffetz is stepping down because he is afraid. Like all the others who took bribes from Putin, via Trump, he finds himself under federal investigation for campaign finance fraud.

It is rumored that Chaffetz accepted $10 million in “campaign donations” on October 28, 2016, the same day he leaked James Comey’s letter about Hillary Clinton’s emails, a surprising and unethical decision made by a man who had been unwilling to support Donald Trump prior to that point. 
These political rumors tend to be proven true. Time will tell. Who will fall next?

  1. Amazing that so many high-rankers leave their jobs to spend ‘more time with their family.’ I guess family does a silent cheer that they finally count for something. Don’t let the door hit you, buddy…
